P4DTI issue job000435

TitleBugzilla doesn't have enough fields to migrate typical jobs
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionTypical jobs have more fields than bugs in Bugzilla 2.14. This means that when you migrate from Perforce to Bugzilla, you have to either lose some data, or adopt an unsatisfactory approach like concatenating several fields into the long description, where they can't be edited.
AnalysisThis is a defect in Bugzilla [2]. Better to wait for it to be fixed in Bugzilla (release 2.18?) than to work around a Bugzilla defect.
